eSure auto insurance company, Sheila’s Wheels, focuses on the issues of women drivers and works to help insure them and ensure that
they get the best service and coverage possible. Recently, the folks at Sheila’s Wheels have released an article based on a study by
their research department which reveals that approximately 190,000 female motorists have “had an accident, ‘near miss’, or made a
sudden maneuver as a result of their vision being limited by their hair while driving.”
The study further revealed that a whopping 67 percent of the women questioned currently have hairstyles
that can fall into their eyes while driving. In spite of this, only 21 percent of the women said that they always secure their hair
off of their face before they get behind the wheel.
Those women who don’t secure their hair site as their reasons that they don’t consider it necessary (33

the women polled admitted that they take their hands off the wheel while driving in order to push their hair back or rearrange the
hair, temporarily leaving themselves out of control of their car.

stray hair out of your face and be the ultimate in glamour.
